Friday 9th November 7.30pm
The Sixteen

The Chapel, Old Royal Naval College
 


A Golden Age - music by Scarlatti, Lotti, Melgas, Rebelo and Caldara.
Conducted by Harry Christophers
 

This glorious concert programme presents composers whose origins are either in Portugal or Italy and whose music is at times reflective, uplifting and always inspired. 

Most of the music in this programme is distinctly Portuguese; Rebelo’s sumptuous setting of Panis Angelicus is almost opulent while Melgas’ lamentations are deeply prayerful yet full of hope. There is no doubt, however, that the tour de force is Scarlatti’s virtuosic setting of the Stabat Mater.

Tickets £30.00

Advance Tickets Available From The Early Music Shop
on 01274 288100
